Hi there everyone, back after a great trip to Seattle for Paizo Con, I was totally spoiled by the good folks there. I am still feeling very lucky they flew me over as the guest artist for the Con this year. It was a blast, the best Con I have been to, everyone was so into it and had a great time. If you like Pathfinder and Paizo products or are interest4ed in playing the game I cannot recommend attending the Con highly enough, and also look for a local group of Pathfinder Community in your area, they is a great network of gamers world wide for the game now.

So as I was attending the Con I decided to take prints of a revamped version of the Dungeon frieze/series that I did for the Dungeoneer's Handbook late last year. Repainted at a bigger size, the print proved popular and so I am going to offer it here if anyone is interested. The print size is 6 x 90 inches, and is $75 ( +p&h). Printed on good quality paper with professional quality inks.

Please send me a message if you are interested.

I am writing to apologise for my slow response to comments and notes, I am having trouble with my email validation. And until it is sorted I cannot answer comments and even worse even read notes folks have sent me.

For those of you that have made enquiries about commissions and work offers you can contact me at bcwootten@gmail.com

Again I apologise and I will get back to everyone as soon as I can

Cheers Ben

Hi everybody, I am extremely excited to announce that Paizo Publishing has asked me to be a guest artist at PaizoCon this year, I thought about it for about 7 microseconds and replied with a resounding YES!!!

So I will be in Seattle in July,  5-7th this year, very proud to be representing for Paizo:) The details for the Con are paizo.com/paizocon , so check it out and if you are able come along. I will be selling prints and the like, signing things along with several other artists. There will be gaming, writers and all the folk that bring us the great Pathfinder RPG and much more.

Any thoughts on what you would like to see available as prints or the like?

And as I am in the States in July I have decided to extend the trip and attend Comic Con San Diego also, I will be at the Weta booth on and off during the Con and signing the Hobbiton Print, 'Disturber of the Peace' that I did for Weta Collectibles a couple of years back, so if you have a print bring it along and I will sign it and if you don't have one, why not? Come along get a copy and I will scribble on it for you:)

Look forward to seeing folks at either Con, this is proving to be a very exciting year.

Hi, I am overwhelmed by the response to the Hobbiton painting I just posted, thankyou all so much for the great feedback. Great to know so many of you out there love the world of Middle earth as much as I do. It was really exciting to get to do this painting and even more excting that the feedback has been so positive.

I will try and answer all of the messages that folks have written but I am slow at this at the best of times, so please be patient.

Here is a shameless plug for the sale of the prints of this piece, www.wetanz.com/art-print-distu… . Purely selfish motive, if it sells well I may get to do more Lotr based paintings and that would be awesome:)

Again a huge thanks to all that took the time to write a comment, hugely appreciated.

Hi there every one, I don't make journal entries very often, mainly because my typing is so slow (it has taken three days just to get this far) and because I rarely have anything interesting to say. But today changes that I do have interesting things to say, well one interesting thing, and here it is......
BenWootten.deviantart.com/favo… Book cover by BenWootten


WHITE CLOUD WORLDS!!!!!!! What!!!! No way is it out already, that is so cool!!!! Yes step right up the long awaited book containing 27, count them 27 fantasy and scifi artists from New Zealand squeezed tightly (a little too tightly for my liking, I mean personal space people)between it's pristine covers.
  This is exciting times, designers from Weta Workshop, freelance illustrators, sculptors comic book artists and more rub shoulders in one amazing book, the likes of Greg Broadmore (hairy designer on D9 and of Dr Groadborts), BenStenbeck (of Darkhorse Comics),Jamie Beswarick (sculptor/designer of the Cave troll and much much more), and many more great artists, they even let my good self have a page or two.
  This collection is the brain child of Paul Tobin, friend, artist and pushy bastard, how else do you get 27 artists organised to get their art into one publication, let alone paint a self potrait and write their own text, amazing a tribute to the man's shear bloody mindedness. Well done this Paul this is a monumental piece of work and I for one am immensely proud to be in this book.

I hear you mummuring "that is all well and good but where can I get a copy for myself", well ask no more for following is a list of online shops where it may be found and salivated over and purchased (just in time for Xmas, go on treat yourself) and remember if you do live in Australsia then it can be purchased of most bookstores, also there is a DA page dedicated to the very same title and links to the DA pages of other artists found lurking in the book. There is an interview with myself that can be found on StarshipSofa podcast (ep 106, near the end if you don't want to listen to the whole awesome show), and another interview with paul, myself and others fron the book on the White Cloud Worlds blog. So takes your pick and follow a link, wonder awaits......
